If you’re looking to taste some of the finest brews, and more importantly for free, then the Orlando Brewing Company is the place for you.

Take A Walk With The Animals
One of the best free attractions available in Florida, especially for the kids, is the Peabody Ducks. Every morning, visitors will be able to see the duck procession marching to the Peabody Hotel’s fountain, and famous event that has been going on for years. Escorted by a duck master to the sound of music and rapturous applause, the ducks even make a return march at 5am if you miss the morning session. Furthermore, the Black Hammock Adventures offer free bird exhibitions and live alligator feeding sessions!
If you’re ever stuck for something to do in Florida, there’s always a beautiful park close by. From taking a stroll with your partner to kicking a ball around with your kids, parks offer some of the best free entertainment in the state, and many of them also house nature reserves and other popular visitor attractions.
Take Wekiwa Springs State Park for example. Not only can tourists benefit from over 13 miles of walking and cycling trails, but there are also swan feeding pens and flower exhibitions. The free ‘World of Orchids’ show has beautiful waterfalls and live parrots overlooking some of the most stunning plants in the world – and best of all, it’s free!
